On Saturday, July 19, 2014 I was privileged to attend the 2nd Antique Car Show in POC on the grounds of the Community Center. There I met with Dee Ann Hybner, a resident of both Victoria and Port O’Connor, to learn more about the cars represented. Interesting as both Dee Ann and her husband David have been involved with “antiquey” cars for a number of years so staging this event was a pleasure. David has been restoring them through his ownership of ALM Autobody in Victoria, and Dee Ann because she’s married to him. However, she’s a singer/performer of note throughout this area.

Twenty cars with their owners were present traveling from Rockport, Corpus Christi, Victoria, Tomball, Ganado and Port O’Connor to take part in this display of beautiful machines. There were cars dating from 1934 to 1989 presented here for inspection and wishing by all attendees. But the car that drew my attention was a black Porsche Spyder convertible that belonged to a participant; now that’s a car to really drool over. Speaking with Dee Ann, there will be a 3rd Antique Car Show in POC, and I’m really looking forward to seeing all these gorgeous cars plus more once again.

Our very own Judge, her Honor, Nancy Pomykal, served as the person who had to make the difficult decision as to who walked away with the winning trophies. She stated that she had very many problems trying to decide which was best. There were so very many entrants, all deserving of recognition, including a 1934 Ford 2-door gray coupe whose engine passed the white glove test.

But the following earned the awards: for the Judge’s Choice Trophy: a Black 1971 Mach 1 Mustang by Jan Maly of Houston & POC, and the Best of Show: Juan Cueil of Corpus Christi with the 1966 GT 350 White Mustang. Hope to see you all again next year!
